Blood Bowl: GWJ Slap & Tickle League

I have heard from him, going play him tonight hopefully.

Note to self: don't run the ball into the wrong end zone.

Game played. Finished 2-2. Good game, god knows how I'm suppose to defend with these rats though. Conceded the game tieing TD on the last turn. Going to enjoy playing against humans.

Good game, onewild - seems like the rats dont play great def, but they can sure score in a hurry!

I thought you were doing some serious strategery there
So 2-2 tie. gregrampage played a good game, it was pretty bloody on both sides. Also we had Sweltering Heat which meant we each had 1-3 players out per drive because of the heat. gregrampage's team had only 5 on the pitch (vs 10 for my team) for one drive plus I got a Blitz. Nuffle kind of boned both sides, so it is fitting that we tied.

Ok, day 1 has been advanced, so week 2 games are now available to be played. We'll make the deadline to get the game in Thursday, 1/26. Day 2 schedule is listed above.

ChrisGwinn, let me know when it's ok to validate your bye week match. I didn't want to do that until I was sure you had time to do what you needed to with your team.

The Clan of Urist vs THE BOINGERS

GregRampage, If we see each other online we can try and squeeze the game in otherwise earliest I can schedule is your Friday (my Saturday).

Let me know.

What would I need to do with my team?

Well, I understood that you had a death last game, so I thought that there was a chance you would purchase a replacement. Since you do get assigned skill points during the bye week, I didn't want to advance your team in case you wanted a new hire to have a chance at getting some skill points. After looking at your treasury, I see that isn't possible.

Yeah. I'm going to have a journeyman for the foreseeable future. Go ahead and validate the bye.

Yeah who needs to defend when you can score like that. Took it to its extremes in an A.I game when I got beat by Elves 6-5.

Anyway, Oilypenguin, when do you fancy playing?

this weekend some time? shoot me a message on steam.

I will do.

Hey Cayne, when you want to get our game in?

I'm PST, and i get off work at 6pm PST i can either play immediately, or if you give me 30-35 minutes i can get home to have voice chat. Alternatively anytime you see me online in Steam (either in a game or not) hit me up for a game request and i'll be down to play. However as a definite time i've got a match on Friday after work against Grumpy, i can play you before or after that if you'd like.

That doesn't sound right.

Ooops your right, we did have an initial thought for friday but changed it, okay so my Friday is open

onewild, hit me up on steam this weekend =)

Chabuda or Knightsaber, did you guys already play your week 2 game? I see a 0-0 score up there, but I didn't see anything written in the thread about it. I didn't want to validate until I made sure that you guys actually completed the match. Let me know.

Greg and I got our game it.

Dwarfs vs Amazons.

Quite possibly the worst draw in existence for a rookie Amazon team.

The Dwarfs recieved and prior to the first drive starting I told Greg I had a plan to have his two catchers out of the game on the first turn... It took me 2 turns.

With an injury a turn for the first 4 turns I believe Greg learned to fear the sidelines and frenzying Trollslayers. Luckily that was the end of injuries and the worst was an MNG. For the rest of the game it was all KO's, and oh, there were KO's.

The Dorfs waddled in for a score on the 5th.

The 6 amazons that lined up against the full Dorf team tried for a quick score but soon changed there plan to just stopping dorfs. 3 more KO's.

At the start of the 2nd half 3 amazons stood up so once again it was 6 Amazons. Kick off result? Thrown rock. 1 less amazon. The dorfs, outnumbering the amazons 2 to 1 bashed their way through, took the ball and scored against the 3 remaining amazons on the pitch.

Only 2 more amazons stood up so it was 10 on 5 (the dorf was in the sin bin for fouling)

Kick off result? Blitz!

The dorfs wrapped up the four amazons near the line and headed deep to mark up the thrower. The thrower dodged away and got the ball but had literally nowhere to go so she tried to go for it and create some distance.... result? KO. The dorks mopped up the last few amazons, scooped up hte ball and ran it in for the 3-0 victory!

Good game Greg, you had a great attitude in the face of adversity and Amazons vs Dwarfs is always going to be a tough draw.

Before the game I told my wife that I will consider the match a success of none of my players die. They all lived so I was very happy.

D'Kow War Rats vs Rascists, only lizards

1-1 Tie

onewild played extremely well.

After the heartbreaking disconnect of the previous week, instead of coming out ready to play, my racist lizards came out demoralized. Flat. Pathetic.

Despite having an extreme strength advantage, they didn't have the fire. They were content to just sit rats on the ground. Pathetic. A quick score after the kick off didn't help. Now complacent and just wanting the match to be done so they could get back the the locker room, the lizards played flatter than ever, politely telling rats that, "It would be ever so kind if you please just sit down. Thank you so much." Ugh. They're uncoachable and they allowed a come back TD from the rats almost immediately.

But 1 lizard saw what was going on. 1 lizard stood up and said, "No more! No more will we play like this. We are better than these damn rats AND WE WILL TOLERATE THIS NO LONGER."

The second half opened with the rats receiving. Quickly, they broke down the field. Looking around, there was 1 skink with the glint of a winner in his eye. That skink was Elves Can't Really Dance. He found himself the last line of defense against a quick rodential touchdown. He found himself the last bastion of hope, the bulwark against mammalian impurity. He took one look at that... gutter runner and tore at him, death in his eyes. However, because of rat trickery, ECRD found himself in a terrible position.

"I can push this rat... or I can WIN."

Biting back the pain, Elves Can't Really Dance tore at the rat, biting, clawing, trying to knock the ball loose.

"FROM HELL'S HEART I STAB AT THEE, RAT" he cries as, finally, desperate, ECRD opens up his own jugular, spraying the cold, red blood of the pure into the fiend's eyes, blinding him. Horrified at the power in that pure blood, the rat falls screaming, knocking the ball well away.

Inspired by ECRD's sacrifice, the lizards start putting the hurt on. First a KO, then another, then a gouged eye. Finally, FINALLY, the lizards start pulling themselves together. The last skink remaining on the pitch picks up the ball and begins the long journey back to the end zone.

More rat trickery ensues, the ball is dropped and the skink is down, stunned. 2 turns left. When the skink comes to, he tries to pick the ball up but it's too greasy from the dirty rat paws that had been all over it. It slips! Time expires as the rats try to crawl away, fearful of the powerful lizard retribution (this may be inaccurate).

Alas, a close tie.

Good game oilypenguin, and even better if slightly inaccurate report

Sorry - should have posted. We did play a thrilling 0-0 draw - more interesting than the score would indicate. I lost track of the number of players I lost to injury in this one!

No worries, just didn't want to validate a game that may have not been completed. Match is validated now.

D'oh, been away from the comp for a couple days and haven't looked at the forums. Anytime Mon-Wed night work for you?

I'll have lots of time Wednesday after work.

Monday or Tuesday if you see me online just shoot me an IM and i'll be ready to play. Challenge is i'm PST so most of you east coasters go to bed by the time i get home.

Sweet, I'm bumming around Steam for the rest of the night so drop me a line when you're on.

Gotta crash Cayne, sorry for all the issues I was having earlier. If tomorrow works for you I can do that, if not since that's the deadline I'll concede the loss if that'll work since I've been causing the issues with getting this one in. Sorry again.
